Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth, she has charm and elegance. You might not want to like them, but you do. You'd like to get to know Grace better. But it's difficult, because you realise Jack and Grace are never apart. Some might call this true love. Others might ask why Grace never answers the phone. Or how she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn't work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. And why there are bars on one of the bedroom windows.

Opinion

From Library Staff

On the outside, Jack and Grace look like the perfect couple, but no one could predict what happens behind their closed doors. Not exactly a thriller, but definitely psychological with some suspense and a great audiobook. This book is my go-to when recommending psychological thrillers.

Jack and Grace seem like the perfect couple. He's as handsome and affluent, as she is stunning and graceful. But they're never seen apart, so is their relationship enviable....or chilling?

Not very skillfully written. I stopped reading around page 100 when the story got ridiculous.

Good read but not as chilling as anticipated.
Punishment instilled by Jack had not been severe enough to create anxieties. Although the culmination had been good and well thought off, Esther's involvement would have incurred challenge and enthusiasm.

I did not like this book very much, Very easy to skip pages, you don't miss much. Not recommended.

Talk about dark, twisted story. Plot was good- did not see the end come.

What a great story - but not for the women in this world that have to put up with the abuse a husband can give. hecked out on Wed Sept 9 2018

A slow plodding book. I found Jack to be the least credible character. Nothing about him and his actions made sense other then the little blurb about his past. Also the whole book went in circles around Millie and Thailand. We are never told what it is that Jack 'does' in Thailand. Or why he is specifically so invested in Millie when he has Grace? Does Millie's mental health excite him? One can only guess. A very monotone book, i did not care for Grace's plight or her struggles. I found it bland and hard to read. Hard pass from me.

I found this book very hard to read. It was a thriller but did not go far in thrilling me, rather it made me quite uncomfortable until the end. I found it to have very little plot until the last 60 pages. Not terrible, but won't be recommending.

Wow what a great read. The book is creepy all the way through. I was worried how the story would end for the main character. I have to say it was so very satisfying.

I didn’t like this selection at all. I didn’t care for the voice of the narrator, too pronounced of an English accent for listening to for so long of a time. Also, the story is violent, abusive, depressing. Not for me.
